Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Nicole and Seamus step through the shuttle airlock toward the spaceport terminal.
Seamus: Dwelling on problems you can't do anything about will do naught but give you an ulcer, Nicole.
Seamus and Nicole, and some other passengers, walk along another corridor, under a sign reading: To Baggage Claim. Nicole is still looking cranky, while Seamus is quite calm.
Announcer voice: Passengers arriving from Circumluna 2 may retrieve their luggage at Baggage Portal 5.
Nicole: [mutters something incoherent about her zringer]
At the baggage portal, Seamus shows his travel cards to the android clerk, while still talking to Nicole.
Seamus: You should learn equanimity.
Seamus: Prolonged anger can damage your brain chemistry.
The android brings Nicole's bag, and only her bag, to the counter. Seamus is blowing a gasket.
Clerk: I'm sorry sir, this was the only bag we could find under either of your names.
Seamus: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!!
